Dez is done.
For now, at least. Cowboys star receiver Dez Bryant broke a bone in his foot and is out 4-to-6 weeks after undergoing surgery.
It’s an absolute blow to the Cowboys and quarterback Tony Romo. And to fantasy teams, of course, as Bryant has shown to be one of the top producers at the position.
Dallas will be working out receivers, but for now, the main beneficiaries from Bryant’s absence will be tight end Jason Witten and wideouts Terrance Williams and Cole Beasley.
Williams has shown a knack for getting in the end zone in his young career, but is he ready to take on No. 1 WR role? Is Beasley? Don’t expect Bryant stats, but Romo has made relative unknowns fantasy relevant in the past.
And Week 2’s matchup against the porous Eagles just might be the time to sneak Williams and/or Beasley into your lineups.
Each week I’ll be posting fantasy football rankings for quarterbacks, running backs, wide receivers, tight ends and defenses/special teams. Bookmark our fantasy football rankings 2015 page to keep up-to-date on the latest projections and rankings so you know you who to start and who to sit.
